Jefferson Giving Day


Thank you to all who proudly said, “I’m In” during last week’s inaugural enterprisewide Jefferson Giving Day!

A total of 3,021 alumni, faculty, staff, patients, students, family, and friends came together to celebrate philanthropy and its impact by raising $400,212 in support of patient care, research, scholarships, and more! From that number, 39% of total funds raised were designated to the university with 4% going specifically to scholarships. Jefferson alumni graciously made 20% of all gifts!

We reached new heights with a record-breaking number of donors, making your giving transformational for Jefferson.

For 24 hours across our academic and healthcare campuses, Jefferson pride shone bright, proving that we are indeed truly better together. Hundreds of members of our community, including our volunteers, rallied together for one purpose—to make a difference at Jefferson.

We celebrated the day with sweet treats, music, prize-drawings, and even appearances from special guests, and are sincerely grateful to our sponsors: Canada Dry, Pepsi, Wawa, Insomnia Cookies, Lee's Hoagie House, and Dunkin'. We couldn't have done it without you.

A special thank you to the more than 100 volunteers across the Jefferson enterprise who managed events and activities for community members. This day was successful because of you!
